On Wednesday, the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump PAC, released its latest video, a one-minute satirical ad that features Donald Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
The video is a remix of a six-minute video that Donald Trump Jr. published earlier on Wednesday. In his video, Trump Jr. accused Joe Biden and his son, Hunter of making corrupt business deals with China, Russia, and Ukraine.
The Lincoln Project used the video to create a much shorter ad and manipulated it to make it appear that Trump Jr. is endorsing Biden and accusing his father of using “his political power to sell out the United States of America to our enemies and enrich himself.”
During the ad, the Lincoln Project also has Trump Jr. uttering the word “cocaine” randomly at least three times.
“I’m Donald Trump Jr.” the ad begins. “I’m the son of the President of the United States, one of the most unethical humans in political history.”
“My father was threatening to withhold U.S. aid to Ukraine by effectively blackmailing the Ukrainian government with taxpayer money,” Trump Jr. is edited to say.
“My father leveraged his political power to sell out the United States of America to our enemies and enrich himself.”
The ad wraps up with Trump Jr. saying, “We need someone who will put the interests of the American people over the interests of themselves, and that person is Vice President Joe Biden. Cocaine.”

In his ad, Trump Jr. says, “The Biden family is the most corrupt political family in American history. I can prove it. Joe Biden is terrified that you are about to hear the truth.”
Trump’s oldest son then goes on to reference various claims made in an 87-page report that was released back in September by Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. The report alleged that Joe Biden possibly used his political position to improperly aid his son’s business dealings.

Hunter Biden is corrupt. Jim Biden is corrupt. Joe Biden is corrupt.
The report alleged that Hunter Biden received “questionable payments” from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow and the Chinese government.
Trump Jr. Goes on in his ad to allege that Biden’s brother, James, secured a U.S. contract to build 100,000 houses in Iraq despite having no background in the industry. However, it has been reported that James Biden only had a “minority share” in the company that built the houses.
The report did not prove any actual criminal financial activity by Hunter Biden, nor did it show any wrongdoing by Joe Biden.
“The dark and complex inner lacings of corruption within the Biden family has now been exposed with this incriminating investigation by the United States Senate,” Trump Jr. went on to claim in his ad.
“Did the Biden’s financial entanglements impact U.S. foreign policy? Of course, they did. But did they care? Of course not. That was the plan all along.”
The Lincoln Project also took aim at Lindsey Graham recently as he is fighting for his own political life. Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison is making a run for Graham’s Senate seat with a huge lead in fundraising.
GOP Super PAC The Lincoln Project took aim and ripped the rival Republican. They blasted him with a new ad set to the tune of Sarah McLachlan’s ‘Angel’:

The Lincoln Project is not only driven to push Trump out of office, but also his cronies. How does Graham respond under such a triple threat?
The Republican from South Carolina is caught in a contentious clash for his Senate seat this November.
Jaime Harrison, former chairman of the South Carolina’s Democratic Party is taking on Graham this election. Harrison, has a serious bounty from fundraising while posing a big challenge to the GOP incumbent.
A recent poll given by Quinnipiac University shows the race being dead even with less than six weeks to go.
The Quinnipiac University poll of South Carolina showed Graham and Harrison running neck and neck at 48% each. Within just 48 hours of the poll release, Harrison raised a staggering $2 million, adding to an already staggering $10.6 million raise in August.
Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has announced a new seven-figure cash injection in the state campaign.
Harrison said, “There’s a lot of momentum on the ground here and it’s so great and it’s so encouraging. When I first got into this race and people told me that I couldn’t do this, my whole statement to them is ‘Watch me,’ and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
Plus he added, “I know we have crossover support. I’ve talked to a number of Republicans who I know are going to support us this fall, There are a lot of people, and I think people are going to be surprised on Election Day at the number of crossover votes we get.”
With Graham now potentially lurking as a key vote in favor of Pres. Donald Trump’s prospective Supreme Court candidate, will that impact his presently shaky prospects in the Palmetto State?
